My wife and I test drove a 2017 Titanium 2.0 AWD (19 wheels) and a new Sport. She said the Sport had a rougher ride (bumps were more pronounced) and preferred the 2.0 Titanium. The Sport was in normal mode for the test drive. I knew better than to put it in sport with her in the car. Has anyone else found this to be the case? The handling was much better on the sport. We take long trips and I am thinking the 2.0 would be more comfortable than the Sport. Can anyone comment on the ride?

I’ll be trading in my 2012 Fusion SEL.

This answer is very late, so it's FYI.
I just traded a 2015 Fusion Titanium for a 2017 Fusion Sport. Both came with all-season tires (although different ones, Conti vs. Goodyear, respectively). I've found the ride almost identical, Placing the Sport into sport mode makes only a very small difference in ride, often subtle. Sport mode is not very sporting, it should probably be the default. I also ran the 2015 Titanium on summer-only tires for a while, and that made the ride significantly different - although of course the object was handling so that improved considerably.
So it all depends on what you want. The 2 liter turbo has pretty good power, including passing power. It also has considerably better mileage than the sport. And the seats between the two are structurally identical.
